Can an Art Camp De-Stress Kids from School and Help Them Channel Their Energies in Creative Ways?

October 21-25, 2013


As many schools in the area let out for fall break, Glass House Collective offered three different art camps to allow students to destress, have fun, and learn during their break.


For the many families that go on vacations during fall break, there are just as many who stay home and may find that their children are not decompressing and channeling their energies without some structure to their days. GHC partnered with three different organizations to give these students an opportunity to learn and relax during their break.


Mark Making, a local organization whose vision includes opening up the world of art through community involvement to underprivileged youths, led the Paint, Print, and Paste camp for ages 11-18 in a week of working with professional artists to animate store fronts on Glass Street, create graffiti paste-up posters for the City of Chattanooga’s Affordable Housing Pilot, and explore 3D printing technology for a mural.

BRUSH Paint and Sip led their art camp for children ages 6-12 in a two-day camp involving learning to make their own self-portraits and making paper mache masks.

Art 120 was welcomed back to lead students and their families who participated in our Art Bike Workshops during the previous summer to help prepare their bikes for Atlanta’s Mini-Maker Faire on October 26, 2013.
